Water Removal in Your Canton Home
SERVPRO Technicians Follow Professional Guidelines for Quick Water Removal
There are many situations in which water removal is necessary. Whether it is due to an overloaded washing machine, a faulty household appliance, broken pipe, sewage backup, or just rainwater, an unexpected intrusion of water in your home is devastating. When it comes time to fix water damage, it can also be costly.
House floods happen when excess water starts to pool in areas where it does not belong, and even though you can take precautionary measures to prevent water removal being necessary, there is no failsafe way to be sure it does not happen to your Canton home. When a water emergency strikes, SERVPRO certified technicians are the ones you should call, no matter the reason. They are available 24 hours a day to handle any water damage, get rid of the water and perform emergency restoration service when a leak or house flood happens to you.
When we arrive at your home, we will first carefully pre-inspect all aspects of the areas which are damaged. Our job is to mitigate the loss. We will check for any dangerous situations like falling ceilings, electrical hazards, and deteriorated subfloors.
All the standing water then gets pumped out with the proper equipment. Floors and walls under the damaged area and crawl spaces are checked as well. A moisture meter is then used to determine the extent of water penetrating in floors, carpets, ceilings and walls. Furniture is moved as necessary, and water is extracted from carpets and hard surface flooring. Carpets are detached, and water is extracted from the pad and floor. In most cases, the padding needs to be discarded.
The floors and back of carpeting are treated with an appropriate deodorizer and antimicrobial. The carpet is laid back down on the floor and water is extracted from the surface fibers again.
Air movers are put into the position to deliver rapid airflow to wet surfaces. We base the number of air movers that you need in the space on IICRC recommendations. Dehumidifiers are put into position as well to deliver dry, warm air in the area which is affected. The number and size of dehumidifiers also are based on IICRC recommendations. The drying equipment is monitored daily and moved as needed to ensure the fastest and most accurate drying time.
Water removal takes experience and knowledge, besides the right equipment, and should be left up to the experts at SERVPRO of Cherokee County. Give us a call at (770) 924-3848 whenever your home requires cleanup from water damage of any kind.
